I am expecting a OIP from Co-operative this week so we can work out what to offer on a property we like as otherwise we only have online calculators to go by (which aren't taking into account credit checks etc). Do Co-operative recommend any Chigwell solicitors on the Co-operative conveyancing panel, or is it better to go independently?

You will need to appoint Chigwell solicitors independently although you'll need to choose one on the Co-operative conveyancing panel. The solicitor represents both you and Co-operative through the process.

Do I need to be suspicious by brokers that I am dealing with are recommending an internet conveyancing firm rather than a High Street Chigwell conveyancing company?

As is the case with lots of service providers, often input from connections can be worth their weight in gold. Nevertheless there are many parties with a keen interest in a conveyancing transaction; estate agents, financial adviser and lenders may suggest solicitors to choose. Sometimes the conveyancers might be known to one of the organisations as experts in their field, but sometimes there exists a commercial relationship behind the endorsement. You are free to choose your preferred conveyancer. You need to be aware that most banks specify a panel list of solicitors you must use for the mortgage aspect of your house move.

Why can't I complete my conveyancing in Chigwell on Easter Monday?

Because on completion the purchase price will be transferred electronically between the banks of the buyer and seller's solicitor and currently this can only occur on a working day. It is not possible to complete on a weekend either.
